Squirrel Class 2019 -2020

There have been lots of super penguins around school this week; see how many you can spot! Have a super weekend everyone.

                    Thursday 2nd July

 

    Hello thrilling Squirrels,

 

 Well done for all your posts yesterday. You worked so hard and posted some amazing photos of what you were doing on Seesaw. We loved reading about what you might see hear or feel if you were like Zog and flew in the air. You stretched your words really carefully and wrote some amazing sentences using lovely descriptive language so well done!   In maths, we asked you to collect objects which were heavier or lighter than each other even though they might be smaller or bigger. You found some interesting things and you used super mathematical language to describe them. We are very proud of all of your work.

 

Today in Literacy, we would like you to pretend you are visiting somewhere you enjoy going to and then write a postcard to somebody. You can describe where you are and what you are doing. We wonder where you will choose to go? In Maths today, we are looking at another measure, Capacity. Capacity is measuring liquids so we would like you to collect 5 containers before comparing how much liquid they hold. Your third activity is Music as it is Thursday and today we are listening to rainbow music. We are looking forward to seeing more of your photos, videos and drawings today on Seesaw.

  Have you logged onto Education City this week? Please do if you can so your class might get Tigger on Friday. Read as many times as you can during the week and ask your adult to keep a note of this so you can tell your teacher. Your name may be on the school website if you achieve the next award. Very exciting!

 

   Remember to have fun, keep safe and look after yourselves and always listen very carefully to your adults.

We miss you all and remember we are very proud of you all and what you are achieving.

   Miss Spalding and Mrs Hudson :)

Welcome to Squirrel Class!

 

We are very excited to teach your children this year. If you have any questions please feel free to ask Miss Spalding or Mrs Hudson at the end of the day or write in your child’s reading diary!

 

A few reminders:

Our Library day is Tuesday

PE is on Thursdays

Forest school afternoon is on Friday

 

Please ensure that your child has the correct kit for these days. For PE they need a t-shirt, shorts and trainers and for forest school they need trousers, t-shirt, wellies and waterproofs.

 

We will be updating and adding lots of pictures of what we have been up to on this page too!

This week has been Book Week at Marnel and we have had a great week. The theme of the week was ‘Mary Poppins’ and we have enjoyed taking part in lots of Mary Poppins themed activities; including making our very own Mary Poppins inspired puppets and even meeting Mary herself! On Thursday, we dressed up as our favourite book characters and had a great book day! Finally, on Friday, we were lucky enough to welcome Paul Stickland (illustrator and author) to Marne. We learnt all about how he creates his own books and drawings. What a fantastic week!

Today was Great Fire of London outcome day. We have had fun building houses, making collages, cracking Samuel Pepys’ code and watching Pudding Lane burn down!

Today we came to school in our pyjamas to raise money for Children In Need! We have had lots of fun and have raised lots of money for a great cause.

This week in Literacy we are learning about Dick Whittington and his journey to London. Today we made a 'feelings alley' to think about how he would have felt at the beginning of the story and the end. We also did some 'hot seating' and asked Dick Whittington some questions too.

Welcome back! This week is very special because it is Arts Week and our theme is Space! Today we have made marbled planets, designed our very own planet and even been on an Astronaut Training Camp that we all passed! We can't wait to see what other exciting activities we will get to enjoy over the week!

On Friday we went to Basing Woods and loved jumping in big muddy puddles and looking at the seasonal changes!

This week we had a visit from Tracey who works for Hampshire Fire and Rescue. She told us all about how to stay safe in a fire and some of us even got the chanced to try on the firefighter outfits!
